Bioluminescent Kayaking

Our 2021 Bio Season is NOW loaded! Check this summer to reserve your spot!

Quick Details

Why we are the #1 Choice for Guided Bio Tours

Get Up And Kayaking

Get Up and GLOW during bioluminescent kayak season next summer (2021)!

As we are Florida’s premiere clear kayaking bioluminescent destination, be sure to book in advance as the season generally runs from end of May- beginning of October and is most visible on the darkest nights with a new moon or no moon rise (scroll down for our moon phase calendar). Tours are first-come-first-serve, so don’t wait! We’ve got the BEST bioluminescent tours in Florida as our clear kayaks provide the absolute best ability to view the bioluminescence! 

Bioluminescence is the emission of light by a living organism. When the organisms move in the water they create a beautiful glowing effect. This means that you can see fish underwater by the glow that they give off as they swim, your paddle will glow as you maneuver the waterways, and the natural flow of water will illuminate these organisms. We’re the first clear kayaking bioluminescent company! The great thing about paddling in our clear kayaks is that you can also see the glowing directly below you! Paddling in a clear kayak will enhance your bioluminescence viewing experience by a long shot! 

Please keep in mind that we do offer tours at midnight and later. If you book a time that late, it may look like it is on the next day because of the time.

We launch from the NW side of Haulover Canal! This area is not only home to the bioluminescence, but also large manatee and dolphin populations which both often make appearances during our excursions! Be ready to see lots of bright bioluminescence as well as great Florida wildlife!

COMMON QUESTIONS:

When is the season?

Our bioluminescent season runs June-October (weather dependent). The warmer the weather & water, the better the bioluminescence!  Peak season is July-September.

What Should I wear?

We suggest wearing long sleeve and/or long pants to deter mosquitoes. Also, it helps to spray bug spray underneath your clothing as another form of protection. 

Will I Get Wet?

You will get a little wet from the paddles dripping water on you. Because of this we suggest you bring a towel or change of clothes for after the tour. 

When is the best time to see the bio?

We offer 2-3 tours per night (when the moon is darker than 55%). The brightness of bio does not depend on the time of night so each tour has an equal chance of viewing! 

What nights are the best to see the bio?

The darker the moon phase, the easier it is expected to see the bio! We suggest booking on a night with 55% less of a moon!

Can I tip My guide?

Of course! Our guides work off of the genorosity of your tips! We like to say, “If you enjoyed your ride, tip your guide”!

What is the weight limit?

Our kayaks are not manufactured to hold more than 425 per boat (each of our boats are tandem) and no more than 250 per either seat. 

Do clear kayaks make a difference?

ABSOLUTELY! With clear kayaks you are able to look between your legs and see the bio right underneath you the whole time! We’ve heard guests say it looks like: “Space Mountain, time travel, a galaxy right below you, space sparkles,” and more! 

How long are the tours?

Each tour typically lasts 90 minutes. We will give guests sufficient time to enjoy the bioluminescence as well as learn from and interact with our tour guides! 

How big are your tours?

We max out at 10 total paddlers. We like to keep our groups small and exclusive to give our guests the most intimate experience as possible.

What happens if it rains?

We will still paddle if it is only raining. If there is lightning we may cancel the paddle due to safety precautions. If we cancel the paddle you will be refunded in full!

Can I bring a camera?

If you’d like. Often people try to take photos/videos with their phones or GoPros and it is nearly impossible to see the bio. The best chance of getting the phenomenon on film is with a camera that shoots well in extremely low light. 

IMPORTANT INFO:

The brightness of the moon determines how well the bioluminescence can be seen. The darker the night, the better the illumination.
*We have also included nights where the moon may not rise until later in the night so a bioluminescent tour will still be considerable during these nights. This means there will be no moon until the time stated on each night.*

The best nights are those with no moon rise (0%-4%) and during the new moon phase (5%-25%).

Considerable viewing nights range from 26%-55%.

Non-desirable nights are considered anything over 55%. If you still wish to paddle on a night more than 55% please send us an email so we can open up a tour for you! Peak season is typically end of June – end of August.

May 2021

This is considered beginning of our bioluminescent season - we will open tours as May approaches so we can determine that the bio will be visible or not.

We paddled Shell Key with RAVEN last week! She was an amazing guide and a wonderful teacher! Raven was incredibly... knowledgeable about the preserve and wildlife! The trip was more fun because our guide was enthusiastic. We did the 4:30 tour, saw the sunset, then after dark went into the mangrove cave and witnessed the miracle of bioluminescent plankton!! Raven is a gem and deserves a raise.read more

We LOVE Get Up And Go Kayaking. We’ve done two locations so far and we plan on doing a lot more. The concept of a... clear kayak is genius. We loved seeing so many turtles and fish swim underneath us, even a manatee!!!! We kayaked at Silver Springs and Vero Beach. Being out on the water, seeing the animals, being with family, and experiencing nature is amazing. We highly recommend choosing one of their locations and exploring! The tour guides are very knowledgeable and friendly which makes the tour very worth it.read more

She was very educational about the wildlife and ecosystem and explained to us a few of the different species we saw on our trip! It's also connected to a restaurant and bar with live music. Would definitely recommend for families, friends, couples or groups! We have kayaked plenty of times before but the nighttime kayak added a nice touch!read more

Also, I thought their advertising pictures were enhanced... they were not! It is as bright as their pictures make it out to be... one word of caution: if u are planning to take pictures with an iPhone, I wouldn’t bother (as u will see by my pictures) u really need a DSLR to get great pictures bc u need to be able to control the f stop and iso.

Tour guide Jenna from Tampa Bay St Pete’s Beach was amazing. She was very informative and knowledgeable. . We saw... Dolphins and manatees. Our group was all doubles I was a single and would say the oldest person of the group and she did not make me feel odd man out even when I fell behind. She hooked me on and with her help I was able to keep up and enjoy myself. Would recommend and do again with a partner. Lol.read more

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!! We had the most wonderful experience this morning kayaking down the intracoastal. Chris, our tour... guide, was so helpful in pointing out the many many sea critters and wildlife we came across. He was so cheerful and you could just tell he loved what he was doing and so happy to share all his knowledge with us. Our kids (9,11) had smiles on their face the entire time! We recently moved down to Jupiter from Chicago and this was such a special way to start making amazing memories. Thank you Chris! And thank you Get Up And Go Kayaking!!!!!!!read more

The guides are extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and helpful if you have a less-experienced kayaker in your... group.Definitely use a DEET-based bug spray, I cannot stress this enough. The nearby lagoon is called Mosquito Bay for a reason. You will have to spray your face (close your eyes, obviously), ears and hair to keep them from biting your scalp. I am a farm kid and I have experienced mosquitoes before, and on Merritt Island they come in swarms hundreds thick.I would recommend wearing a light, waterproof jacket with a hood to keep them from constantly buzzing in your ears.I would also recommend bringing your own headlamp or a strobing light stick; you may come across other boats, and there are almost no artificial light sources on the area you're paddling.Remember, this is Florida-- you will be paddling on a wildlife refuge, and you will be sharing the river with dolphins, manatees, and alligators.I will be returning next year!read more

Tyler was our guide, and he was wonderful! Humorous and very easy to talk to/approach. The “tour” isn’t like what... you’d imagine; it really is very easy going and relaxing (although I will say there was only a total of 6 of us (3 couples)) and fun too. The three sisters springs wasn’t what I had imagine (the video on the site looked bigger) but it was still worth the price. I definitely would recommend if. Very clear water, so it is fresh water, but not super fresh where you can drink it (haha). 5/5.read more

I am so glad I chose Get Up and Go Kayaking! Our guide, Ben was professional, friendly and very informative of the area... and I felt very comfortable and safe under his direction. My niece and I chose the Crystal Springs area where we kayaked to the Three Sister's Springs! We were not disappointed! It was incredible to see that there are protected, pristine spots in nature for us to enjoy. The area was not crowded, and at times it felt as if we had the entire river and spring to ourselves. So if you are looking for an experience in a natural environment, I highly recommend you chose Get Up and Go Kayaking. It was a plus to have the clear kayaks to enjoy the view below the boat, too. I will definitely book another trip through Get Up and Go Kayaking to explore other areas.read more

Nous sommes conquis ! Austin connaît les moments opportuns pour expliquer et ceux pour nous laisser profiter de la paix et de l'énergie de la nature et de l'instant.Lorsque nous avons demandé s'il y avait des grenouilles, nous n'avions pas l'intention de les manger, je vous assure (lol).Nous recommandons vivement cette ballade qui sort vraiment des sorties pour touristesread more

Paddling in this crystal clear water is a real joy. The water changes colors as you go upstream making it all the more... beautiful. Out Guide, Austin, was knowledgeable and very helpful, and he spotted a lot of wildlife that we missed. Paddling is a crossover of kayaking and canoeing; took a bit to get used to but worked out fine. It was a bit cold for Florida - low '70's - so we didn't see any alligators. Maybe next time. Great experience.https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g29171-d12278155-r646797155-Get_Up_And_Go_Kayaking-Apopka_Florida.html#read more

Clear Kayak for the Clear Water in Rock Spring....So Perfect!!!Thank you Get Up and Go! My Family and I had a blast!... You helped made this unforgettable experience happened! I knew I rebooked this twice because of our limited schedule and because of the weather! But you are all the best and your team.Everything was handled smoothly, promptly and no hassles at all! And you gave us Ali as our guide, she’s awesome, friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and with very calm demeanor.We loved her!Honestly, I could not get off Rock Springs with the clear kayaks off my mind! Overwhelmingly beautiful! My husband who at first was so apprehensive about alligators and snake, was blown away also.We have been traveling for sometime now and chased lakes/ springs but this is in the top of my favorites! Maybe because, your clear kayaks and the clear water complement each other and the surrounding just amazing( trees/vines/grass/fishes/turtles/birds& etc.). Our experience was just perfect from start to finish! We are hoping we can sneak a short vacation again to Florida soon so we can try the other places you offered!read more

We booked the Rock Springs trip for our honeymoon. We got married October 20, 2018. The main reason choosing Florida... was just to do the clear kayaking. We have been looking forward to this for months now. Our tour guide was Tiki and she did not disappoint! She had so much knowledge about the water and the animals. She was so helpful getting us comfortable in the kayaks from start to finish. She helped us in and out a couple times along the way for breaks and let us take as much time as we needed. It was so peaceful on the way back just gliding thru the water. My husband only had to steer and I got some amazing photos. We are already planning a trip back next year to do the other trip you offer. The trip and Tiki by far exceeded our expectations. We loved every minute of it!!!read more

Tonight I got to experience one very cool item on my bucket list... bioluminescence. When I tell you it was pure magic,... I’m not exaggerating. The smile never left my face!! The water was alive with color and energy and in the pitch black of the night, the electric teal danced brightly with every move. 🛶🛶Bioluminescence is the light given off by living organisms - like fireflies and angler fish! This water was filled with trillions of dinoflagellates (plankton) that emit light when disturbed. There are only a handful of places in the world where you can immerse yourself in this incredible natural phenomenon, and Florida’s Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge on the East Coast is one of them, located about 1.25 hours east of Orlando. 🛫🛬I took a tour with @getupandgokayaking and got to experience kayaking in the pitch black of a hot summer night, with frequent (and gorgeous) streaks of lightning painting the sky. The bioluminescence was vibrant and was everywhere, including under the kayak and looked like the galaxy! 🌌✨✨Little fish darted around the kayaks, making the water come alive with light. A manatee announced his presence with a tremendous splash. Dolphins lazily played nearby and were showing off their grace. Jellyfish were electrified when caught in the little nets we had. And the best part was watching the front of the kayak plow through the water the whole time, scattering bright, big color in a wide V around us. That’s this first photo. And it doesn’t do it justice AT ALL. It’s remarkably hard to photograph, and I’m shocked I even got *one.* 📷🐬🐊I got spooked by a manatee, had little fish literally jumping over my head, I saw dolphins and I had the sky open up on me and hit me with a deluge of water, making the surface glow. It was a remarkably positive experience and I’m so glad I went. ❤️🦐🐚read more

We had a amazing experience doing the bioluminescent kayak tour. Our guide was really friendly, helpful, and... knowledgeable. The bioluminescence was bright and magical and totally worth the trip. We also saw dolphins jumping in the water beside us. The clear kayaks made the trip even better!read more

We went on the bioluminescent tour last night and it was perfect. Our guide Austin (Texas/Powers/Stone Cold Steve) was... funny and knowledgable. We saw manatee, fish, a dolphin, and got to catch and hold comb jellies. The sky was clear and you could see all of the stars and with the clear boats it seems like you were gliding on a glowing ocean. I can’t explain how amazing it was. If you have any inclination to do this DO IT!! You will not be disappointed.read more

Had a great bio tour with Justin on Sunday night, Aug 19th. It was so informative, fun and beautiful. Not only was... the bioluminescent cool, we were visited by a couple of dolphins and also saw shooting stars. Because of the absence of light pollution, the night sky made us look up as much as we were looking down at the glowing water. We also learned a lot about environment and animals around us, as well as, get a glimpse of NASA’s huge assembly building! I would definitely recommend this tour to everyone!read more

We did the winter park tour this evening with Austin and it was amazing! We arrived with the weather threatening the... trip but it stayed calm and worked it's way around us. We can't recommend it enough to anyone looking for a clear kayak tour, we thoroughly enjoyed it and will hopefully be back to do it again! Austin did an awesome job and made the tour relaxed and filled with information about our surroundings. Highly recommended, thank you✌🏻read more

I cannot say enough great things about the Bioluminescent Tour! Oh my goodness, the videos just are not capable of... doing it justice. It was so incredibly beautiful and peaceful. We even had the added bonus of a friendly manatee pop up to join us! My only recommendation is to wear clothes you don't care about. We came out pretty smelly afterwards... then again I was almost bathing in the water, when you pick it up with your hands you turn all sparkly...so I was splashing it on all my clothes as well! So amazing. If you have the chance you MUST experience it.read more

I'd recommend this trip and this group! I realized just days before our trip was scheduled that I had botched the... reservations; they were very quick and accommodating. Thankfully! The guide was so peaceful while we were the hot mess family. We managed to hear a lot of information about the land, the animals and even the stars. The clear kayaks made seeing the bioluminescense easier especially along the edges/front but also streaming right beneath us. Beautiful!read more

The bioluminescent tour was amazing! We could see the water glow through the clear kayaks. We went on an amazing night... when the water was really bright and it was beautiful. Tyler and Austin were very knowledgeable tour guides and got excited with us when we saw the glowing water and wild life. We saw an alligator on the bank, a dolphin popped up in front of our kayak, and a manatee bumped our kayak! It was a great night and we would definitely do it againread more

Crossed an item off my bucket list tonight - we did the bioluminescent kayaking tour with Get Up and Go Kayaking. We... had great conditions to really see the dinoflagellates/bioluminescence but it also helped that we were in clear kayaks so we could really see the dinoflagellates/bioluminescence as we paddled. Our guides, Austin and Tyler, were knowledgeable, entertaining and professional. I would definitely recommend this company and these two guides!!read more

This is a somewhat late review, but my husband and I did the rock springs kayaking trip during our honeymoon in June.... We had the best time!! Our guide, Hunter, was so awesome and relatable, and knew exactly what he was doing. We loved being able to experience true Florida nature up close, and it was a nice change of scenery since we were on the beach the rest of the week. We hope to come back and do it again sometime!!read more

My husband and I did the bioluminescent tour last Friday and we can't stop talking about it! We kayaked next to... dolphins while being surrounded by bioluminescence and the night sky over the Wildlife Refuge. Our tour guide, Alex, was knowledgeable, passionate about the area, and so much fun. I'm already planning my next trip! Thank you all so much for these memories!read more

Austin was a Fantastic Guide. This was our 2nd tour with Get Up and Go and we just loved the experience. Everything was... clearly spelled out on what to bring, wear, and directions were very accurate. The clear Kayaks made the experience even more intense and fantastic. We will definitely be booking again with this group and also try some of their other day tours. Thank you Justin and Austin!!!read more

Loved our tour with Getup and Go Kayaking! The Experience is a must do and the clear kayaks made it awesome! I would... highly recommend this company. While there I saw another company bring their group back to the wrong launch area where they then had to walk down the dirt road back to their vehicles. Also noticed that the other companies had much larger groups, so glad we went with Get Up and Go they definitely seem to be the best. Also our tour guide (Alex, I believe it was) was very knowledgeable and professional while still being fun.read more
